Summary

This MSc in Leading Quality Improvement provides students with a rigorous framework for the development and synthesis of empirical, professional and organisational knowledge and skills as the basis for improving the quality of healthcare. The programme will adopt a broad perspective on healthcare quality encompassing three themes:

- Effectiveness (e.g. the use of evidence)

- Efficiency (e.g. service reliability);

- Acceptability (e.g. the service user experience).

Attention will be paid to the full range of components of improving quality, including public policy and organisational strategy; governance and risk management; leadership; professional behaviour change; and service user involvement. The MSc will provide a focus for ‘research into teaching’ around the School of Healthcare Sciences’ research expertise in implementation.

A significant element of the course is structured around Prof. Rycroft Malone’s Promoting Action on Research Implementation in Health Services (PARIHS) framework giving students an insight into and understanding of cutting edge implementation issues in a modern healthcare environment.
